    Re: Navy Ship Named After ISU Grad

    Excellent! USNS is a part of the US Navy that employs both civilian and military sailors. The United States Naval Service (USNS) performs most services at sea that are provided ashore in port. This service's primary mission is to keep ships on station as long as necessary. A secondary mission is for weapons systems research for which this ship is constructed. I didn't realize an ISU alumnus invented EW, but it's way cool that he did. EW employs some pretty sophisticated electronics.

    Ship named after ISU alum

    Ship named after ISU alumnus - Omaha.com

    A U.S. Navy ship christened last week was named after an Iowa State University alumnus known as the “Father of Electronic Warfare.”

    The ship Howard O. Lorenzen, christened last weekend in Pascagoula, Miss., is named after 1935 ISU electrical engineering graduate. Lorenzen spent most of his professional career working in Washington, D.C., at the Naval Research Laboratory.

    The missile range instrumentation ship displaces 12,575 tons, is 534 feet long and will house 88 crew members. The ship will provide a platform for monitoring missile launches and collect data that can be used for missile targeting.

    During Lorenzen’s 33 years with the Naval Research Laboratory, he helped lay the groundwork for modern electronic warfare. He retired in 1973 and died in 2000. — World-Herald News Service
